    Chinese mall installs ‘husband storage pods’ to entertain men
    A Chinese shopping mall in Shanghai has launched “husband storage pods” to entertain the bored men while their spouses shop, attracting dozens of people.  Men can sit and play retro 1990s games. “Men usually get bored when shopping with their female partners, so we have provided them a place to rest. They can play games and charge their mobile phones here,” said Zhou Jun, who operates and maintains the pods. Users scan to QR code to reserve a pod, which costs 20 yuan for half an hour or 30 yuan per hour, Zhou said. Since its launch one month ago, the “husband storage” facility has attracted dozens of people every day, state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.
